    Great libraries that gives your Umbraco Razor a boost

    uQuery comes with the uComponents package. Just install it and you are ready to go.

    uQL is a query DSL/Framework for umbraco. It uses the same design pattens as LINQ to query over umbraco's in-memory xml cache. (UQL = umbraco query language)

    nQuery is a DynamicNode query helper bringing several time saving methods to get your content, and best of all you can use it in standard usercontrols as well as razor.
